Leony Léonard Kweuke (born 12 July 1987) is a Cameroonian footballer who currently plays for Turkish club Çaykur Rizespor.[1]

Career[edit]

On 18 December 2008, Kweuke's club DAC Dunajská Streda loaned him to Eintracht Frankfurt to play in the German Bundesliga.[2][3] For the 2009–10 season, he was loaned to FC Energie Cottbus.[1] On 10 June 2010, DAC announced his return after two years in Germany, but he was sold to Sparta Prague. Kweuke was banned by the league in May 2013 after receiving a red card in a Czech Cup match against Mladá Boleslav. The dismissal was for a tackle which broke the leg of defender Radek Dosoudil in two places. The ban, to last for 12 matches, was the longest-ever punishment issued by the Czech league.[4]
